… The Shift in Human Nature

You're starting to see integrity change. Awareness recalibrates integrity, and the Human Being who would sit there and take advantage of another Human Being in an old energy would never do it in a new energy. The reason? It will become intuitive, so this is a shift in Human Nature as well, for in the past you have assumed that people take advantage of people first and integrity comes later. That's just ordinary Human nature.

In the past, Human nature expressed within governments worked like this: If you were stronger than the other one, you simply conquered them. If you were strong, it was an invitation to conquer. If you were weak, it was an invitation to be conquered. No one even thought about it. It was the way of things. The bigger you could have your armies, the better they would do when you sent them out to conquer. That's not how you think today. Did you notice?

Any country that thinks this way today will not survive, for humanity has discovered that the world goes far better by putting things together instead of tearing them apart. The new energy puts the weak and strong together in ways that make sense and that have integrity. Take a look at what happened to some of the businesses in this great land (USA). Up to 30 years ago, when you started realizing some of them didn't have integrity, you eliminated them. What happened to the tobacco companies when you realized they were knowingly addicting your children? Today, they still sell their products to less-aware countries, but that will also change.

What did you do a few years ago when you realized that your bankers were actually selling you homes that they knew you couldn't pay for later? They were walking away, smiling greedily, not thinking about the heartbreak that was to follow when a life's dream would be lost. Dear American, you are in a recession. However, this is like when you prune a tree and cut back the branches. When the tree grows back, you've got control and the branches will grow bigger and stronger than they were before, without the greed factor. Then, if you don't like the way it grows back, you'll prune it again! I tell you this because awareness is now in control of big money. It's right before your eyes, what you're doing. But fear often rules. …

Transportation to airport clear

The Jakarta Post, Jakarta

With the exception of travelers and residents heading to the airport, many people in Jakarta will have difficulty reaching their destinations Monday with no improvements made so far (as of Sunday) for the city's inundated roads.

The government ensured, however, alternative routes and transportation to and from Sukarno-Hatta International Airport as well as the use of Halim Perdanakusuma airbase as a contingency measure.

The measures were made after Vice President Jusuf Kalla's helicopter tour Sunday, conducting an aerial examination of the airport as well as part of the inundated city.

Kalla was accompanied by State Minister for State Enterprise Sofyan Djalil, Transportation Minister Jusman Syafii Jamal, State Minister for the Environment Rahmat Witoelar, Public Works Minister Djoko Kirmanto, Social Affairs Minister Bachtiar Chamsyah and Jakarta Governor Fauzi Bowo.

Fauzi said that a plan to build elevated expressways to the airport would soon be realized to deal with possible floods.

Airport operator PT Angkasa Pura II's corporate secretary, Sudaryanto, said all airport buses had been informed to take alternative routes through Tangerang to reach the airport's back gate (also known as west gate), should the Sedyatmo tollway -- the main access route to the airport -- remain flooded.

In cooperation with tollroad operator PT Jasa Marga and public bus operator PT Damri, the airport management has also prepared trucks and dinghies that could pass through the floods to evacuate passengers trapped on the tollroad.

Flag carrier Garuda Indonesia was forced to place its crew in hotels near the airport to ensure that the airline's services would not be disrupted by the floods, Garuda spokesman Pujobroto said.

The airline also needed to prepare back-up fuel, in case planes were diverted to other airports, Pujobroto added.

Merpati Nusantara has decided to begin moving its operational activities to Halim on Monday night.

"The activities would be returned to Soekarno-Hatta as soon as the conditions improve," Merpati general manager Purwatmo said.

Airport administration head Herry Bakti said the flight schedule had returned to normal on Sunday.

"There are some delays, but nothing unusual," he was quoted as saying by Antara.

He said the delays were mostly caused by air crew and passengers arriving late to the airport due to the chaotic traffic, even though the runway was still flooded.

The inundated tollway to the airport has been closed since Friday. The government has created detours for traffic through several alternative routes, including Tangerang city.

"The number of vehicles (traversing in the city to reach the airport's back gate) increased to some 15,000 per day since Friday, three times the amount on a regular day," airport traffic police chief Comr. Sutimin said.

The Traffic Management Center reported several areas were still flooded Sunday, including West Jakarta's Joglo, Daan Mogot, and Cengkareng as well as North Jakarta's Ancol, Tanjung Priok, Cilincing and Kelapa Gading.
